TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A man from the United States arrested in Australia for vandalizing trains
with graffiti was reportedly also involved in similar acts in Taipei and Kaohsiung, reports said Friday.
Police in Melbourne detained a man who called himself “Ether” but whose real name was Jim Clay Harper last month, though his female partner, who used the moniker “Utah” but was called Danielle Bremner, was missing and believed to have fled to Hong Kong, media reports said. Harper was later sentenced to six months in jail.
The couple reportedly traveled all over Asia, from Turkey to Singapore and Malaysia, and at each stop they painted graffiti on trains, and then sold DVD’s showing their exploits for NT$1,100 (US$34) a piece, reports said. [FULL STORY]
